Attic Insulation Houston - Helping You Save Money

Home Improvement
It is really shocking to learn that as per the estimates of U.S Department of Energy at present nearly eighty million homes are not adequately insulated, resulting to massive wastage of energy. In the US, even today, energy derived from the most expensive fuels is most frequently used for heating homes. Despite media trying their best to educate people, awareness to conserve energy seems to be very low. It is time that people reassessed their energy requirements and hire attic insulation Houston contractors to save not only energy, but also plenty of their cash.

If you happen to be living in a state that experiences very cold winters and or hot summers, you can easily save twenty percent or even more on electricity bills by getting your attic suitably insulated. Experts are of the opinion that the expense for attic insulation pays for itself in just about one year. Subsequently, you start saving. And, you would know money saved is money earned!

At the outset you need to find out if your attic needs insulation. You could do it by inspecting your attic. You'll need to have a good look at the attic and using a tape measure the thickness of insulation it has. Insulation of materials is measured in terms of its R-value, and varies with materials. On an average it is desirable to have an R-value of 49. That would generally require a thickness of eighteen inches. An easier and definitely more reliable option would be to seek professional help of insulating contractors. Usually, good reputable contractors would inspect your property and give an estimate without any charge. Of course, you'll need to spend some time and effort in looking for a competent contractor in your local area.

Having assessed that your attic needs to be insulated, you'll need to choose the material to be used for insulation. Primarily four materials are available for insulating attics. These are foam spray, rolled batts, fiberglass and cellulose.

Foam spray: Of all the four available options, this has the has the highest value of R. However, it needs to be installed by professional and experienced companies as it requires special tools. Because of its high R value, it offers highest level of attic insulation and is certainly the most expensive too. Rolled batts: These offer a practical solution when jobs are simple, without many obstructions. High value of R can be reached by laying layers in opposite direction.

Fiberglass insulation: Most attic insulation Houston contractors consider this to be the best way of insulating attics. Insulation contractors in Ohio solely depend on Owens Corning blown fiberglass for insulation projects. Its R-value is good and it's a very light material. Settling is almost zero, so R-value is maintained. As the material is inorganic, it hardly retains any moisture and eliminates fear of mold getting formed. As it's a lightweight material, it can be blown easily to get R-values higher than cellulose. It is also cost effective. attic insulation Houston

Cellulose insulation: These days it is quite popular to use this material. Most modern homes make use of this. Basically, it is recycled newspaper which is chemically treated to provide protection against fire. Though its price is reasonable, it settles fast and thus loses its R-value. By weight, it can retain up to twenty percent of water in form of moisture that is certainly not healthy. It is a heavy material, making installation cumbersome. It can become exceptionally heavy on absorbing moisture. Being an organic material, it presents the fear of mold getting formed and that discourages many to use it.

If the right kind of attic insulation Houston is installed properly, an oven in the attic would not affect the temperature of space beneath it. During summers you won’t need to run your air conditioner at its peak.
